I finally decided to keep a blog to track workouts, meals, post videos, post fitness rants (oh do I rant) and give advice. I thought today would be the day to start for a few reasons.
- Today is my 40th birthday, and no 40 is not the new 30. 40 is 40.
- I just completed the 10,000 swing challenge.
What next? I'll take the weekend off and Monday push towards 11,000 possibly 12,000. I'm sure during the RKC I'll have to do 1000 swings each day, so I have to be ready for that. Monday I'll also do a practice run on the snatch test. 100 snatches in less than 5 minutes with a 24kg bell (53lbs) Is it hard? Think about running from a pitbull while pushing a truck uphill. Ok, not that hard, but it is taxing. We've done them a few times in my small group classes and everyone is always smoked when it's over.
Here is a vid of my birthday workout, snatch transfers. The workout comes from Tracy Reifkand who has a blog and posts tons of great posts about food, workouts and life. I plan on updating this blog on a regular basis. I have a food journal that I did a few weeks back, just haven't edited it yet.
